Beautiful clean modern room, nice spa like bathroom, small boutique hotel with restaurant. This hotel is connected to the Kirkwood Community College next door and has students working along side Hotel staff. Very accommodating front desk staff. Large parking lot.

A very very nice stay. Staff was courteous. Hotel was new clean and classy. Bar makes the tastiest White Russian I've ever had. Note: there is no pool at the hotel. Location is on the outskirts of town and while not WAY out of the way, it's not super close to town either.

A former Iowan, I was planning to visit (and stay with) relatives, over the Christmas holiday. An unexpected impending ice and snow storm caused me to have to cut those plans a bit short - I needed to get to someplace near the Eastern Iowa Airport, for two nights, so that I'd be safe, and able to catch my flight...

My fiancé and I stayed at the Kirkwood Hotel while visiting family for Christmas. We checked in Christmas Eve to a beautiful king size room. It is hands down the best lit hotel room I've ever been in. I counted 9 lights not including the ones in the bathroom. With that much light you can't hide dirt. The room was... More

I've stayed at the Hotel at Kirkwood several times while visiting family in Cedar Rapids. I've also had the privilege of staying at some truly world-class hotels such as the Villa d'Este on Lake Como, The Waldorf in New York City, The Willard in Washington, DC and have spent most of my working life on the road in hotels.

....and it was a class act. Customer service, cleanliness, design and comfort was a level of service and product all hotels should strive to achieve. The room décor was lovely and the property was clean being a new hotel at the time. I was treated extremely well and the student personnel was very caring and professional. Kudos to those with...

This hotel was amazing. I visited the KirkWood for a business trip. The shuttle driver picked me up from the airport in a 300 Chrysler. He opened the door for me each time it needed to be opened and insisted upon doing so. Once into the hotel, the front lobby was filled with people socializing and enjoying their meals. As... More

This is a newer hotel that is well designed and has staff that caters to your every whim. Seriously, it's nice. The beds are super comfortable and the room is very clean. I would have given it 4.5 stars because the on site workout room is just meh, but they will transport you (for free) to a nearby workout facility.... More

I would recommend to business travelers. Nice clean facility, relatively new, beautiful rooms, nicely appointed, quiet. Nice banquet facility. Needs a bit more table space in the atrium of the banquet room when entertaining large parties. Attention needs to be paid to detail. You have a beautiful facility, you have a great restaurant, you could really knock it out of... More
